Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

The Church in Wales is committed to a Safe Church policy, through which we aim to meet our responsibilities to create and maintain a safe environment for everybody within our church family. A key component of that policy is the requirement that clergy and certain categories of volunteers and employees undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly called CRB checks) before exercising public ministry or certain duties on behalf of the Church in Wales.
